New apps for electronic identification documents: A door to usability

This presentation discusses the physical and electronic innovations of the Spanish identity card issued in 2015. Its dual-interface chip facilitates communication with administration and allows it to be used with NFC-enabled smart phones, opening new possibilities.

After reviewing the security measures of the plastic support (UV, rainbow printing, OVI, CLI, transparent window, etc.), the electronic features of the new document’s dual-interface chip (citizen identification, electronic signature and electronic travel document) will be presented, as well as the internal data structure, which follows international standards. The infrastructure of document issuance (PKI, time validity of certificates, etc.) was upgraded to coincide with the launch of the new identity card.

Examples of mobile applications will also be given, for both eGovernment (Social Security, Tax Agency, Traffic Department, etc.) and daily activities (authorisation to withdraw products in pharmacies or mail, electronic signature, registration, etc.), whose source code is available for developers.
